Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the audio book and ebook deal.

SO I will admit, I haven’t read an MC book/series in along time. When the genre blew up, this girl devoured allllll the books but lately I have just passed when offered books. Well I have recently become obsessed with Michel’s library of books (Hello Two Ink Minimum is amazing!!) and so I was like OK Lets Do IT!! SO I grabbed the book and started listening…..FRIENDS!!! YES!!!! This book was everything I needed in a story. Yes its an MC but those elements weren’t overpowered in the story?? Does that make sense. Yes the club is there and club rules are visible but the characters took the story and my heart.

Josh/Red is a nomad and looking to go home because his father has passed away and his mom needed him at the family ranch. While he is riding, he sees something in the desert and rushes to see who it is. He can hear the wild animals getting closer, so he is worried. What he sees hits him in the gut. He is looking at a battered and essentially dead woman.

Nova/Roadkill thinks she is being lifted to heaven and is stunned when she opens her eyes in a room. She is surrounded by strangers and these blue eyes that she remembered from when she was dying. Nova has no idea what happened or even what her name is hence the club name of Roadkill.
The couple have a great natural building of chemistry. Red wants to help her while also protect her. The banter and seriousness of her attack forms a bond that neither is ready for and both try to push away.

Red is the first to realize he wants Nova forever but knows she is a mess and is probably not sure what the club life is like since she got some 2nd hand not particularly true information.

The couple go through a lot like moving to Montana to start a Steel MC Charter club, dealing with that past she had hidden away in her mind, solving some crimes against women, and falling in love.
Red is a no-nonsense guy. He won’t fight his feelings and is doing everything he can for Nova to realize her place is with him. Nova hasn’t ever had a real family or had people who generally cared for her, so this new “Family” is confusing and scary. But Nova is a bad ass chick who embraces the title Property.

I am so excited to read the story of the rest of the characters. I admit Baldy is the one I am more excited for because his character just screamed at me the most but knowing the next book is Cass, I am stoked!!

Review by Twinsie Angie

I am going to be honest.  I am not sure if Michel gave me the audio code for this audiobook or if I bought it.  But whatever the case, here is my honest review.

Let’s just get to the point with narration…Kat Maxwell is amazing.  I love love love all the books that I have listened to her narrate.  She has a great ability to make each person sound different.  She can emphasize at just the right time in certain scenes to make sure you get that intended laugh or pick up on the sarcasm.  Seriously her narration definitely brings more to the table and authors should be looking her up for books.  I never doubt an audiobook when I see she is narrating it.

Oh Mandy, Mandy, Mandy….or Miss Man as the kids call her.  She is a broken mess of hurt, sadness, rejection, and loss of emotion.  I mean everyone knows someone like her or everyone had been where she is.  She uses her body and sex to make her FEEL but in the end is left feeling worse.  When secrets about her parentage come tumbling out of the closet, she is stunned at how this little bit of news will change the “Growing Strong Mafia”.  She soon learns that not everything is what it seemed.

Ashton sees what an amazing, loyal, fierce, and sexy as hell person Amanda is but can’t understand why she devalues herself all the time.  He is falling for the hard as nails teacher and wants to make sure she understands he is there for the long haul IF she can open her heart to him.  He makes her soon see that relationships aren’t all THAT bad IF you find the ONE person to complete your soul.

Don’t worry friends Mandy does not make it easy for Ashton but he challenges her at every turn while being there to comfort her as her life slowly starts to crumble around her.  More and more secrets start to spill, and Mandy starts to wonder why life can be so craptatic.  Mandy also needs to realize that Ash IS WORTH IT and WILL NOT disappoint her in the end.

Don’t worry friends, I yelled at Mandy a time or two to stop being a rock-hard stubborn idiot.  I also yelled at Ashton to slow his roll because Mandy is a timid horse who will buck you at every turn.  However, their story was hilarious and funny to read.  Her hating him more than air was the best thing ever especially knowing that no one believed her line of bull!!

#WOTR21 – #Review – #NewRelease – Amara Acquired by Michel Prince

Amara Acquired

In 2002 four planes disappeared over Western Wisconsin, thirteen years later one has requested landing privileges.

Jocelyn ‘Joss’ Randall is on a time crunch. A business trip to Detroit already had her plane bumped an hour and for some reason the plane is taxiing on the runway forever when they finally land in Minneapolis. Her seatmate is annoying her with fears of missing her connection and all Joss wants is to see her baby Molly and get to a birthday party for her niece. The last thing she expected was a week in Detroit would feel like a decade.

Carlton Randall is finally to the point of moving on with his life. His teenage daughter Molly is yearning for independence and his long distance girlfriend Carrie has been transferred to Minneapolis. Things are falling into place for his grief to end. The
loss of his wife, with no remains to claim left him questioning for years. Accepting the mysterious loss only to have the woman appear. Young, unchanged and with no understanding how her one-year-old is now fourteen.

Distance between Joss and Carlton isn’t a new thing, but when he refuses to touch her, looks a decade older and refers to her as an it, not a his wife, the divide is growing. Strange language, lost thoughts and dreams in the form of memories haunting Joss does not help the situation.

Is the man haunting her dreams truth or fiction? Has she learned a language never heard before by anyone on Earth? And if this dream world is real, is that where more than her heart lies?

Review by Twinsie Kelly

I received this ARC from Booksprout in exchange for an honest review.

What a whirlwind! With Fate at its finest and glitches in the system, this is an insane story that is gripping with so many twists. You will remain completely engaged from beginning to end. One night Joss’ plane disappears without a trace along with 3 others. 13 years later she reappears completely unchanged, and the details of the other planes keep changing. She finds that she is haunted by a strange man from a strange place, and she keeps speaking crazy weird words in a language that no one knows. She feels like she is going crazy. Her husband, Carl, had finally come to terms with Joss being gone, he is raising a teenage daughter that reminds him everyday of Joss, and has a new love in his life that he truly feels at peace with. Now Joss and Carl are all over the place with their emotions. They both know that they were drifting apart before Joss left but what now? How do you move on from this? Move forward? Their story completely pulls at your heartstrings. They both truly found themselves when they were apart, and the hard part is what do they do now? What about their teenage daughter, Molly? There are a million questions, incredible emotions, a great cast of diverse characters, with crazy incredible settings. Oh, I didn’t mention the ending….one helluva ending! Wowza! I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Cursed Whispers by AJ Renee

Cursed Whispers (Broderick Coven Book 3)

Animals were Max Broderick’s life.

He wasn’t only a veterinarian. He spoke with animals, quite literally, on a daily basis.

He rescued a wolf on the verge of dying and was shocked beyond belief when she turned out to be a beautiful werewolf.

Claudia Lupita wanted two things: her daughter and as many miles as possible separating her and the monster who’d been holding them captive for years.

Determined to protect her, Max enlists help from his closest circle.

Can they overcome her past, or had she lived through too much to accept her mate?

Broderick Coven Series:
Cursed Love
Cursed Sight
Cursed Whispers
Cursed Touch
Cursed Luck

My 5 Star Review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

I will admit. I was curious about Max and his gift to talk to animals. #DogLover I kinda figured he would be my absolute favorite of the Broderick family and I am right. Now if we are talking about the cast of characters in the series, Peter wins hands down, but Max is my favorite sibling.

Max is the sweetest guy who is still coming to terms with his family lineage and powers. He is troubled when he hears someone or something in the woods at Brandy’s baby shower. When he saves a wolf/woman. He is instantly bonded to her. He wants to do all he can to hep her without freaking her out at the same time. He is also freaked out at his reaction to this damaged woman but can’t not be near her.

Claudia is a warrior…that is the only way to describe what she endured and survived. She appreciated the soft and kind man but also had her walls up due to her belief all men are bad. When she sees him for what he really is, a gentleman, she learns to trust him but also worries about what she is feeling for him.

When Max and the pack vow to help her find her daughter and avenge her abuse, she is over her head with emotions for these people. Claudia slowly learns to heal and love while having the support of the pack and the Broderick family at her side.

I have to say this book is my favorite in the series so far. But man, Peter needs to find some love. I feel bad for the alpha. But I am excited for Carter’s book to be next!!

Second and Short by Michel Prince

Second and Short: Book 2 of the Love by the Yard Series

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.
In book two of Love by the Yard: Offensive linemen are considered the silent protectors of the game. Always expected to be there, but never seen by the fans. Whether by accident or circumstance, Dalton Gresham has been known as the Blood Thirsty Bear of the Gridiron since his rookie year. With fans wearing number seventy-seven with fake blood dripped on it, can this giant in football shake his monster status?
Having hidden away at Lost Lake, Wisconsin, the last thing Willeen Fire needed was publicity. The tall, voluptuous woman has a beauty she hides behind flannel shirts and engine grease while staying off the grid. When Dalton first meets Willeen, the last thing he thought was she was a woman in need of protection. But as he falls for her, the natural instinct to protect is screaming in his ears.
Can Dalton stop being the monster he’s been labeled and become the one who will finally save Willeen from the man hunting her?

My 5 star review 

I received this audio book from the author for an honest review.

The narrator was great in this book. Logan has narrated several books for Michel and I love his ability to change voices. His narration brings you into each story. You get lost in his voice and his reading of the stories.

Dalton was a favorite side character in book 1 so I was happy to see him get a book. Granted I thought he might hook up with Dani’s school friend after the way the two seemed to eye each other. Dalton is a gentle giant who is lost in his “persona” for the Chicago Grizzles. He wants to make a mark, but it seems they want the giant lineman to play a violent man when he is far from violent. When he gets injured, he is sent to cool his heels and recuperate from the injury. He starts off badly right at the start when he “ASSUMES” (we know not to do this right?) that Willie is an old redneck with a dirty flannel. He is stunned stupid when he finds out Willie is the hottie who is getting his cabin ready for his stay. The woman was his perfect size in height and curves.

Willie is enchanted by Dalton and his sweet character but can’t understand why everyone thinks he is an aggressive man. When he finds out his “character” she is surprised and helps him realize being himself is the best way to be. The two start to build a relationship but Willie is so scared of wanting more since she cannot give that. Willie has a past she fears and is frightened to find her.

When the two finally take a step forward, Willie’s past crashes into them. She makes a choice which Dalton is not a fan of but will do anything to get his girl. When you love someone today, tomorrow, forever…you can’t let them go.
Again, I love the fact Michel brings a gritty and vile bad guy to the story. Michel writes great bad guys that you hate and can’t wait to see get their butt kicked!! LOL

His One True Mate by Miranda Lynn

His One True Mate (The Night Shift Series Book 1)

Billionaire tech genius, Leo Lancaster is accustomed to hiding his truth behind mankind’s materialistic comforts.
But no more. The lion within him is on the prowl for a mate, and his primal instincts refuse to be ignored. Driven by his shifter side, he embarks on a journey across the globe to claim that fated bond.

Thankfully, he doesn’t have to venture far. Sauntering by in heels and a curve-hugging pencil skirt, everything about Katrina calls to him. To Leo’s great regret, she needs a bit of convincing.

Katrina Denmark is on the run from a past determined to destroy her.
By focusing her life on helping others, she battles to overcome the fears that haunt her. Finally, she’s starting to feel safe. In control. Until the lioness side of her begins aching to submit to Leo. Terrified of her own growing desires, Katrina is deliberating over whether to take a chance on Leo when the deranged monster she’s spent years trying to escape catches up to her.

With her life and freedom on the line, will Katrina allow Leo to stand beside with the ferocious love of a mate? Or will her own fears force her to face the looming darkness alone?

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

This series is a MUST read for me….a PNR reader at the core. I love the characters and the way Miranda keeps the storyline fresh. Each book I feel she brings something new and some kinda new evil that the pack must overcome. This pack might be spread throughout the globe, but they are family through and through.

Oh Leo. He and his lion have been on my radar for a long time. We have watched him help Casey and her new pack. We know he helped Jerome build his pack but what about Leo?? When will he get his love and find happiness?? Well a certain therapist he secured for Casey’s pack seems to be the one who will give him all he needs and more….love, companionship, sass, and heartache. Yes, I said heartache.

Leo has A LOT to deal with in regard to Katerina AKA Kat. She is a broken woman who helps other broken women but never really looks to heal herself completely. Kat has been through some stuff and now when she thinks she has found a place to belong, along comes Leo making her lioness want MORE while her human side is petrified. Her experiences with alphas and mates have not been good. Casey and Mack are a strange concept given what she has seen growing up.

Kat’s father was a power-hungry alpha who treated the females in his pack terrible. What she endures is horrifying but her ability to escape and mend herself just enough to help others is amazing. However, Leo sets her off kilter and she soon is at war with herself over this alpha male. That hussy lioness in her sees Leo for all he is but her human side is so afraid she pushes.

Their story is full of chemistry and is action packed. When Kat’s past shows up and tries to ruin her future, she is a mess. Leo can’t handle the fact his mate is in fear and will do everything to protect what is his…his love…his future…his mate…HIS LIFE!!!

Friends, this book is seriously a perfect addition to the series. I am so excited at where it looks to be headed and ya’ll DJ is hella delicious!! Just saying. I said it first here!!!!

Dirty Crown by Mary Martel

Dirty Crown

I always held hope that the day I left the compound would be the day I found freedom.

I was wrong.
My future had never really belonged to me. My father laid claim to it the day I was born, and I had been a stupid, naïve girl to wish for anything different.

As the heir to my father’s immense empire, my crown sits heavily on my head as I navigate my way through dealings with the criminal world while trying to stay alive.

Unfortunately for me, my crown and my hands are forced to get dirty along the way. Thankfully, I’m not expected to do it alone. Roarke, my deadly bodyguard who’s been by my side since I was six, is my shadow and always will be. I also now have Alessio, the cold, tattooed hottie, Roman, who conceals everything with fakeness that comes far too easily for him, and the alluring but sweet brothers, Tito and Enzo.

When bullets start flying, and people begin dying, my five guys not only stand behind me as the queen of their empire, but they also prove they have every right to be there by getting their hands just as dirty as my own.

Dirty Crown is a full-length, standalone reverse harem novel. This book is recommended for readers 18+. It contains sexual situations, swearing, violence, and some dark themes. It also contains MM as well as MFM.

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

I am a Mary whore. I will read all she writes because they are dark, gritty, bloody, sexy as fuck, hilarious, and wrong all at the damn same time. I think I need therapy, but her books are all I ever  want in life. The crazier the character, the more I love them. The more broken the male, the more I need to have them in my stash of book boyfriends. This group of men do not disappoint…broke, alpha, arrogant, and sexy as hell men dominate Vallie’s life.

Valentina has had a life of squalor with her bodyguard Roarke to protect her in this compound. Her father is THE Mafia boss, and he loves her so much he treats her terrible. One day she is sprung from her hell to be thrust into a new roll…his puppet with his picked “husbands” for her. Yes, plural husbands. She is not willing to play his puppet, but she goes along with it until she and Roarke can figure it all out. When absolute chaos ensues, she becomes the head of THE FAMILY with her men. Friends, there is a grenade scene that absolutely cracked me up…..I mean I had mad Boss Bitch Vibes all day long for Vallie.

I loved all of her men. Roarke is delicious as her boytoy/bodyguard/lover. Enzo is the sweet one who is just as deadly who enjoys time with Roarke as well as Vallie. Roman with his crazy laughter and boy next door charm who is also scary as hell. Alessio who rules the house and the guards with brute force only we could love. Tito is a bit of mess who needs to figure stuff out but his love for Vallie is never ever to be questioned. But I did wanna nut punch him a time or two. However, If I could also see a Hawk enter this harem, it would be day made but I don’t think the MC President would be willing to share with the guys…darn. I guess just being her bestie will have to do.

This book has so much going on and I loved all the violence and grit, but all the sexy time was just as delicious!!! If you’re a Mary fan this will make your list for sure!!!

Compromised by H.R. Savage

COMPROMISED: An Adult Post-Apocalyptic Romance (Ruins of Playa Azul Book 2)

We left our home in a blaze of fire…

Gunner and I clung to the hope that we were leading our group to safety. However, in the unfamiliar mountains we find something we weren’t expecting–a hidden group of people…and someone I thought was dead.

Creekside Camp offers the promise of new beginnings for our injured and hungry people, and Gunner and I are thrust into a new normal. The idea of an ordinary life with him hung in front of me like the proverbial carrot.

But secrets threaten to unravel our tentative happiness and we are suddenly confronted with threats from not only the dead–but the living as well.

Will Gunner and I finally get a chance toward happiness? Or will the secrets compromise everything we’ve worked so hard for?

NOTE: COMPROMISED is the second book in the Ruins of Playa Azul duet. You MUST read CAPTURED prior to understand the plot and characters.

My 5 star review

I was given this book for an honest review by the author.

GGGGIIIIIRRRRL and Boys was I excited for this book!! I love Zombies and book 1 blew me right out of the damn water. I have been on pins and needles waiting for this book!!!

Ok look Gunnar….Can I just say I get why Thea was on him as often as possible because DAYUM he is all that and a bag of chips. He is the most deliciously alpha male in this book series. No offense Jason buuuut your small potatoes.
Thea is the bad ass chick you wanna have as your bestie if the world goes to crap. She is the tough as nails person who will hug you and smack you upside the head to get your butt in gear and move.

The book starts up right where book 1 ended. The rag tag team of misfits are trying to get to the mountains after defeating the bad peoples…ok monsters…in book 1. Bad people are way too light of a term for them. They stumble into an unprotected camp and Thea’s past is in her face before she knows it. Talk about crazy and hard. The leader of the new camp is friendly but…uhm…how do I say it…a sexist pig?? *GRUNT* Women do women’s work, and the manly man protect the little women folk. *GRUNT* So yeah if you get the drift on Thea that doesn’t go well with her…LOL LAWD do not get me started on VI!! BAHAHAHA She is a load of crazy and I love her so much.

When Gunnar and Thea are attacked by someone in the camp…yeah tense is a word you can use to describe the next few chapters. Finding out that there is a secret that has been withheld from the camp is also something they have to deal with and decide what to do.

I am going to always hope for more from this series because I love zombies!! But Jason and Vi…Come on…a little novella. I need to know how she wormed her way into his broken heart!!

Cardiothoracic surgical resident, Dr. Leeda “Lee-Lee” Jackson, scoffed when she was called in for an orthopedic case. Only the EKG told her the patient had more going on than a broken leg. Staring down at the patient struggling for air, she couldn’t help seeing her brother, Xavier. Determined to do whatever she could to get the man back on the field, Lee-Lee sets out to do what she does best.
Declan knows if his full condition is released to the Grizzlies, everything he’s ever worked toward will be lost. Not ready to put that part of his life away, he plans to do whatever it takes, and the sexy doctor is the first step.
In football, if you’re not cheating—you’re not trying. An encroachment penalty is only a five yard penalty if you get caught. However, what’s going on between the doctor and patient, could cost Declan and Lee-Lee everything they have achieved in life.
Is their attraction more than a passing flirtation? Or will more than one heart need repaired when it is over?

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased the book/audio whisper snyc off Amazon.

Ok so the narration for this book is yet again amazing.  Logan is the best at his job.  I admit I am being super picky with my male narration voices anymore.  Logan has crept his way to the top for me.  He does a great job varying voices for the characters and what I love the most, his female voices don’t sound squeaky and high pitched.

Lee-Lee…sis!!  You know I fell in love with your sassy fire attitude in your brothers’ book and now I get to see you up close and personal.  Lee-Lee has been under plastic bubble wrap from her overprotective but ever-loving brother.  He makes sure to chase ALL THE BOYS away but when Declan comes around, this MAN will not be swayed.

Declan is living life as a Grizzle when a broken ankle takes him to the ER.  When the sex doctor rolls in he is stunned that she is also super smart.  This is just the kind of women he can get on board with.  Then he realizes she hold his career in his hand so he was a total DB and thought he would wine and dine the doctor to get releases.  When he starts to love her, he is just as floored as the rest of the crew that he fell in love.

Lee-Lee has a plan.  She has a goal.  Yes Declan checks off the boxes but she will not be swayed away form her dream job at the dream hospital.  Thankfully, Declan makes her realize she can have more then just a career and have it with him if she just takes a chance.

The story begins to unfold, and a few issues get in the couple’s way like a jealous rival for her affection, a job change, and miscommunication.  I gotta say I loved how everything ended and how she was able to kick Declan’s older brother’s butt in to gear!    But now my eye is on Declan’s other brother for what life holds for him!!

She knows eventually they find their way out of her head and to her fingertips and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

When Michel can suppress the voices in her head she can be found at a scouting event or cheering for her son in a variety of sports. She would like to thank her family for always being in her corner and especially her husband for supporting her every dream and never letting her give up.

#WOTR – #Review – The Amalgam (The Aberration Book 1) by Michel Prince

The Amalgam (The Aberration Book 1)

Genetics, radioactive spiders, mutation following tainted energy drinks. No one knows what triggered teens to suddenly get powers. Abilities emerge, first sought, then destroying lives with only one link between those effected. Their birthdays all end in double zeroes.

Riley Weston wished he could be an awkward kid in high school, but life had other plans. The Aberration Laws made all around him suspect, until the wheel of fate turned to point her arrow at him.

At first being labeled an Aberration would get you locked away for the greater good. When it was discovered children born in the year two-thousand are the only ones getting powers, no one is immune. Even if your powers have yet to emerge. The government is set on owning all those in possession of abilities.

For Riley, a camp, ran by Aberrations, hides, trains, and keeps them safe. But the world wants their powers. To meld them into a force no army could defeat. Riley, and those like him, now walk the world scared, angry and afraid. Which is not the combo you want with unlimited powers.

Can Riley learn to control his gift before outside forces find him? Or before inside sources give away more than just him, but the whole camp.

Review by Twinsie Kelly

Did you read the blurb?! Mutations, aberrations, genetics….YA Sci Fi? Sign me up! This is something straight out of a superhero comic! I live for this stuff! This story is an intricately woven fantastical tale that never leaves you with a dull moment. Right from the jump, Riley’s house is being searched and he is in a sort of panic room or safe room. He has been forced to live in secrecy for fear of being taken to a type of detainment camp to be experimented on. The time has come for him to secretly be taken to a secret camp with others like him. His mom and dad basically have to smuggle him out and make a secret trade for this to happen. All hell breaks loose and Riley is swept away to the camp. Only, it’s not exactly a camp. This is a massive center with tons of others that are “special” like him and others that are “normal” with no powers. He quickly finds out that not everyone can be trusted. And as his power starts coming to fruition. Only he finds that he doesn’t have just one power like the other aberrations,  but multiple. Now we have a teenage boy that has been thrust into a crazy situation that he is trying to navigate, he needs to learn his powers, all while being scared and confused. This is a dangerous combo. But wait, there’s more! He finds an incredible group of friends that he can absolutely rely on but when you are told that you may be “the one”…How are you supposed to react?! And don’t forget, we still don’t know who to trust. 

There is an incredible explanation as to why these kids have powers. The way that these teens figure it out and explain it, brings a historical type of element to this book. Gods and goddesses from way back when could all be part of who they are today. And when stuff really starts to go haywire, the truth starts coming out with even more twists coming your way. 

Seriously, if you need something different to shake things up, this is the book that will do it for you. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the sequel. Bravo, Ms. Prince! Loved it!

Fourth and Goal: Book 4 of the Love By the Yard Series by [Michel Prince]

Warning: For Mature Adult Audiences 18+. Contains language and actions some may deem offensive. Sexually explicit content. MF.

In book four of Love by the Yard: Beaumont Guthry, in his short time in the sport, prepares to step out of the shadow as a backup quarterback and into the spotlight as he takes over the Chicago Grizzlies. The team may be desperate for a quarterback, but Beau fears his style might get him benched before the first pass is in the air. For Beau, it will be the first time his father’s money won’t help to smooth over any missteps he makes.

The thirst for knowledge is what has kept Esme Carmichael in college for the last eight years. When her parents draw a line in the sand, forcing her to pick a degree and graduate, Esme realizes her biggest worry in the last decade has been could she swing more than two hours sleep a night.

Esme, instead of the four walls and security of a classroom, is faced with the future, one which petrifies her.
Meeting Beau seemed to be the perfect distraction she needed. What she didn’t count on was his past derailing their chance for a relationship—a relationship, she nor he signed up for. It was supposed to be a simple deal—sex—no strings, no complications.

Review by Twinsie Angie

I purchased this audio book.

Logan does an outstanding job of narrating for all the books in this series.  I enjoy his natural and calm voice for each book.  He brings each character to life with his amazing smooth voice.

Esme…she is the best best friend a girl could have.  She is a hot mess of flittering all around the world and seems to lose interest in everything until she meets the new man whore drunk quarterback Beau.

Beau needs some ass kicking and Esme is the girl to do it.  LOL  He thinks he is all that and yes he is but he needs some humble pie as well. Which Esme is happy to do on the regular.

When these two meets and decide to have some simple friends with benefits action they never imagine love might happen too.  Beau has a lot of ghosts to deal with and Esme has a past boyfriend she needs to conquer before she can open her heart to this reformed playboy.

Beau has never had someone value him for more then what he can give or buy them.  Esme has never had a man be able to keep her attention for more than 1 night at a time.  When they both start to learn to lean one each other they are freaking out but also hoping maybe more can come to it.

I loved the two and enjoyed their play time but was also screaming at them to JUST ADMIT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER DAMN IT!!!!  The two are another amazing and fun.  They are a great addition to the series but Dalton is still my baby daddy!!!

The Politician’s Heart (Growing Strong Book 3) by Michel Prince

Narrator: Kat Maxwell

I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.

The narrator by Kat Maxwell is amazing.  I loved seeing her name on the book for narrator.  She does a great job voicing the characters.  She is one of my favorite narrators for audio books.

This book I have to admit I was not sure I would enjoy.  I am not a person who reads F/F and so I was like meeeehhhhh about it BUT I love Michel’s stories soooooooo…. I absolutely loved Sarah and Karen as a couple. I admit I can’t wait for book 4. Mandy and Ashton, after watching the sexual chemistry these two had for each other but that is for another day.

Sarah is the mom of the group.  She is the one who wears their heart on her sleeve.  She is the one who will do anything and everything for her Mafia Family, Lover, students and their families, and her family in general.  When Sarah’s hearts broken, we feel her desire to be with someone but at the same time she wont settle for anyone like Mandy.  She has lived her life out and does not understand why anyone would need to be in the closet. But not everyone has the amazing support system Sarah has.

Karen is the state representative who is living a double life.  She has her best friend Ashton as her “Beard” while she navigates a career as a politician….wait….as a conservative Republican politician.  When her campaign manager tells her she has a good chance to win a US Senate seat, She jumps.  The very last thing she expects is to meet the love of her life while manning a booth at a county fair.

Sarah and Karen have to navigate A LOT due to Karen’s Closet status and the fact she is a person in the public spotlight.  Seeing Karen want to be her true self all the while fearing the loss of her political career and family weighs heavily on her.  With Ashton’s steady hand plus Sarah’s loving guidance and understanding, they learn to navigate things together.

I admit I love where the book ended in the epilogue.  I hope that storyline continues in book 4.  I would love to know what happens to the campaign.  I also admit I am glad I did read the story.  The love between these ladies was wonderful.  Seeing the respect between the ladies was amazing.
